A stage production of the story of the Elephant Man will be coming to the Hong Kong stage at the end of May 2012.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - May 4th, 2012 - Hong Kong's Kwai Tsing Theatre will be the venue for a new stage production of The Elephant Man, which will make its debut on May 26th 2012.

The Chung Ying Theatre Company will bring the famous story to life in dramatic fashion, allowing audiences to experience the real-life tale of Joseph Merrick, who was born in 19th century England with horrific deformities.

Abandoned by his parents, he was adopted by the owner of a circus and exhibited as a freak for public entertainment, suffering inhumane treatment until he was eventually able to form a friendship with the surgeon Frederick Treves.

The story has inspired numerous adaptations and retellings, including David Lynch's acclaimed film from 1980, which starred John Hurt as Merrick.

Tickets to see the Hong Kong stage version are available online now from HK$120 (£9.50).

Performances are available at 14:30 local time on May 26th to 27th and June 2nd to 3rd, while 19:30 shows will also be staged on May 26th and 31st and on June 1st to 2nd.
